Cross reactive species
Human (Homo sapiens), Mouse (Mus musculus), Rat (Rattus norvegicus)
Water buffered solution containing 100ug/ml BSA, 50% glycerol and 0.09% sodium azide. Store at 4°C for 12 months.
Cardiac potassium channel subunit; KCNG2; KCNG2_HUMAN; KV6.2; Potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily G member 2; Voltage-gated potassium channel subunit Kv6.2.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
Polyclonals can be used for Western blot, immunohistochemistry on frozen slices or parrafin fixed tissues. The advantage is that there are more epitopes available in a polyclonal antiserum to detect the proteins than in monoclonal sera.
Cross Reactive Species details
No significant cross reactivity has been observed for this antibody for the tested species. However, note that due to limited knowledge it is impossible to predict with 100% guarantee that the antibody does not corss react with any other species.
Avoid freeze/thaw cycles as they may denaturate the polypeptide chains of the antibody, thus reducing its reactivity, specificity and sensitivity. For antibodies that are in liquid form or reconstituted lyophilized antibodies small amounts could become entrapped on the seal or the walls of the tube. Prior to use briefly centrifuge the vial to gather all the solution on the bottom.
Neuronal and cardiac cells are excited by voltage-gated ion channels. Voltage-gated K+ channels in the plasma membrane control the repolarization and the frequency of action potentials in neurons, muscles and other excitable cells. Mutations interfering with potassium ion channels are known to cause a variety of disorders. KCNG2 (potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily G member 2) is also known as voltage-gated potassium channel subunit KV6.2, cardiac potassium channel subunit or KCNF2 and is a 466 amino acid protein. KCNG2 is a multi-pass membrane protein abundantly expressed in heart, liver, skeletal muscle, kidney and pancreas, and detected at lower concentrations in brain, lung and placenta. KCNG2 is an electrically silent subunit that forms heterodimers with KV2.1, creating a unique functional K+ channel. KCNG2-KV2.1 heterodimers are known to be inhibited by tetraethylammonium and propafenone. KCNG2 is thought to downregulate potassium channel currents because KCNG2-KV2.1 heterodimers generate smaller currents than KV2.1 homodimers
